why do dogs roll after eating

qumumNovember 10, 2010

Have a lab/rottie mix. Has a Lab personality. EVERY time after he finishes eating he will roll on his back and squiggle and twist and roll for a bit. what is wrong with him? Outside he hunts soft dirt to roll in and inside he just rolls, ect on the carpet.

IMHO, I think they roll because they are happy. Delicious food, full tummy, happy, happy happy! Every dog I have owned has done this.
